Nisaburo Ito (1910-1988) was a student of Tsuchida Bakusen at The Kyoto City Specialty School of Painting. Ito was interested in promoting the art of the woodblock print and interpreting traditional woodblock images in a 20th century style. His beautiful landscapes and nature subjects captured the attention of those looking to preserve the memory of the classic architecture and natural scenes which were quickly changing in the mid-20th century. His works are tranquil reminders of the traditional beauty of Japan. His floral subjects are beautiful, large woodblock prints, rendered with lovely attention to detail and lively color. He was well known for local scenes in Kyoto - among them a very popular image of the Golden Pavilion in Kyoto.
